have to get that point across. preexisting conditions under a romney administration, regardless of what he says, will be out the window if he has his way for tens of millions of americans. >> please, honestly, julian, you can't go on and deal with all of his lies. we don't have -- >> the point is -- >> we don't have time to address them all. >> the point here is, i think the problem in the debate last week is americans want a strong -- they want somebody who they perceive as being very strong. obama, i think, was caught off guard. not because he's not a good debater. i just don't think he thought romney would be as aggressive as he was. it's like a sucker punch. you get the first shot for free but i don't think the republicans will get away with it in the biden debate or the next two presidential debates. much more meat on the table for democrats go after, apart from the fact the demographics are in the democrats' favor. this is still obama's race to lose. >> dana, we corrected or recorrected the romney narrative on abortion but we heard the story of romney meating a former navy s.e.a.l
women what they should fear from the next administration, should it be a romney administration, what is your concerns? what are the list of concerns you have? >> first of all, the thought that my daughters would have fewer rights than i do, or my granddaughters or other folks' children, women would literally lose the right to make their own personal decisions about health care, about having children is absolutely inkretdible. that is frightening. the other thing that's an immediate concern is planned parenthood. we see 3 million patients every year. many of these women, we're their only doctor. this is the one medical visit to get their breast exam, pap smear, family planning services and mitt romney says he's going to get rid of all that and doesn't even seem to care. there are millions of women in this country who are concerned. and access to health care, it's a basic economic issue. >> let me get back to the larger question of health care because we're on this topic, david. you know, i can't -- i think romney's got some pretty good political instincts out there, some chops i didn'
agree we ought to be talking about what the next four years will bring because it looks like romney administration would just be one big surprise party. we have no idea what that is going to be like. so -- but i think the president and the vice president really do need to give the american people a clear sense of where they want to go. >> well, let's talk about that reset because, obviously the president did take a hit in the debate. and there have been a lot of headlines about worried democrats. do you think he needed to make the adjustments? we are hearing about it in his campaign. if he needs to do more, congressman, what is it? >> well, again, you know, i don't think the american people are really interested in who wins the fight between candidates. i think they want inform know what president obama is really willing to fight for. and he's talked time and time again about that -- necessity to invest in education and research and development and infrastructure. he has a jobs act program which is really a comprehensive program that embraces many ideas including many republican ide
the obama administration did it. >> okay. how do you prepare governor romney for his debate? what do you do? >> you know, the reason he did so well on wednesday was because he was being mitt romney. democrats, i think, thought that the caricature was going to show up, the one they have been putting on tv. when they misrepresent his tax plan and he is able to say, that's not my plan, here and it is lay it out, you know, it's very hard for president obama because what he has been doing for months now, here in ohio and elsewhere is showing negative ads that misrepresent what mitt romney is all b. he doll that again at the next debate. it will be a debate where president obama will do well, i'm sure, it's a town hall-type debate. he likes those. but mitt romney will be doing what he did in the last one, setting the record straight, letting the american people know where he really stands. the more he does that, the better we do in ohio. i am sensing on the grown, the undecided voters are hearing what mitt romney's actually for, rather than seeing tv ads and the obama administration, you know, ha
of administrators. romney will deregulate water, air, the workplace, food, oil, banks, wall street, he told us that he wants to get rid of teachers, cops, firefighters or what he calls government workers. that's mitt romney's america. george w. bush's policies on steroids. now ask yourself the question, americans. can you get fooled again? we're a month away. think about it. that's "the ed show." i'm ed shultz. >>> "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening my friend. thank you for staying with us this hour. there was this moment in 2008 on election night that year. i know you were watching our coverage here on msnbc, but on election night in 2008 over on the fox news channel, carl rove in the middle of fox's election night coverage was on tv gaming out john mccain's chances of pulling out a win that night. he said during their election coverage, quote, if senator mccain loses ohio he goes from 286 electoral votes, which the republicans carried in '04, down to 266 and that puts him below the 270 needed to win the white house. so he would not only need to s
in the blagojevich administration. mitt romney says if elected president he would reinstate a policy banning federal funding of private groups that provide abortions. romney also told the "des moines register" that he has no abortion-related legislation on his platform. that's contrary to earlier statements romney made promising to appoint supreme court justices who would overturn roe-v-wade. which affirms a woman's right to have an abortion. after the remarks were published online, romney's campaign spokeswoman reiterated that romney is opposed to abortion. a spokeswoman for president obama's campaign said "women simply can't trust romney." >>they want the ads pull since they are a non partisan no profit organization. the obama campaign says they are considering the request. next the scathing report released today about lance armstrong and doping allegations. also, the investigation into the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya. lawmakers today hold a hearing on capitol hill. and later two major u.s. companies and their connection to horrifying undercover video showing the mistreatment
to pbs, the obama administration chose satire as a defense. >> mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> reporter: she didn't use sarcasm but even the first lady criticized mitt romney's plan. >> we all know good and well cutting sesame street is no way to balance the budget. >> reporter: his pledge to slash public broadcasting's funding is one of the ways he hopes to cut excessive funding and is taking exception to president obama using sarcasm to counter his plan. >> these are tough times with serious issues, so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. >> reporter: it's a please sage president obama doesn't seem to be letting go of any time soon. i'll tell you who haven't liking this. pbs asked for the ads to be taken down. no word if it will be pulled any time soon. >>> we know at this point president obama struggled mightily in last week's debate. coming up, why it didn't have to be that way. anita? >>> jerry sandusky took their innocence, their courage in court has now taken away
administration and what mitt romney is offering. when you look at what happened in port saint lucie when governor romney was there on sunday. huclose to 16,000 people there. they were there, coming from a county, here, that has almost a 13% unemployment rate. they don't want to be part of a dependency society, they want people that are going to create the right type of tax and regulatory policies, access to capital policies that will allow our small businesses to get back to being opened and also to return production and manufacturing to this country. they don't want to see the policies that continue to go from 26 weeks of unemployment benefits up to 99 weeks. they don't want to be part of a society that goes from 32 million americans on food stamps, but 47 million americans. they don't want to be part of a society that has gone to 9.3 million more americans on poverty. that's what the dependency society gives you. plus, with that, the expansion of the federal government. you get $16 tril whereon in debt and four straight years of trillion-dollar-plus deficits. we have to move away from that. >>
for us coming out. the administration isn't reeling. a president seemingly off-balance. governor romney has taken a slight overall lead in national polls and the president seems to be criticized almost as vigorously by his friends is by governor romney. now we learn the defense secretary leon panetta has sent our troops to georgia. to make a clear statement of support to our jordanian allies and an unmistakable signal to turkey and iran to take some care and some caution. my guest tonight is no stranger to foreign policy. the white house is running from the political fallout and a crumbling middle east. joining us now is k.t. mcfarland. it is great to have you with us. let's start with the testimony before the house oversight committee,. >> what happens in an election year is that the policy misfires. the administration from the white house, wants to get as far away from the president as he can. so he has no idea who did what, when did they do it, who said what. eventually the dust settled and then what happens is the administration has to blame everybody. lou: it's inconceivable that t
. the difference between this and sports is that the stakes are so high. >> reporter: in the days since, the romney team has been out in force, saying, this wasn't just about performance or style. but an administration that seems tired and governor romney, filled with energy and new ideas. >> well, there's no doubt that he made a good sales pitch. the problem is, the product's not going to work. there were no new ideas in there. >> reporter: what did mrs. obama say to you when you got home that night? >> you know what, michelle is always my best adviser, my toughest critic. she and i have been through this together. >> reporter: is it possible you handed him the election that night? >> no. >> reporter: you're going to win? >> yes. >> reporter: you want it more than the first time? >> absolutely. because i've, you know, one of the things about being in this office is, you're reminded every day about what's at stake. on saturday, i took michelle out to dinner. the waiter said, "thank you, you saved my mom's life because of your health care law. she was able to get the care that she needed." that's wh
is october 22nd. >>> there is more fall out over romney's comments about big bird in last week's debate. at 5:35 the new ad just released by the obama campaign and who is asking the administration to pull it. it's not romney or the republicans. >> jerry sandusky was sentenced today. he will spend at least 30 years in jail. effectively it's a life sentence. >> reporter: he arrived at the courts house clutching a folder smiling. he faced up to 400 years in jail. the 68-year-old continued to proclaim his innocence in court. speaking for about 13 minutes he insisted that he didn't do these disgusting acts. the lead prosecutor called his speech ridiculous. >> his statement today was a masterpiece ofself delusion, completely unattach from reality and without any acceptance of responsibility. >> reporter: then victim after victim claimed he is also a lier. victim number six cried telling sandusky its time for you to admit your sins. convict victim number four said screwed up my life. the judge sentenced him to a minimum of 30 years and a maximum of 60 years. the defense attorneys promptly announce
. we'll see you tomorrow. >> bret: congress calls members of the obama administration on to the capitol hill carpet in the emerging scandal over the libya terror attack. this is "special report." good evening. i'm bret baier. 27 days from a rapidly evolving presidential election. governor romney is now ahead of president obama in just released fox news polls this hour. 46 to 45%. he also has a one percentage point lead, one-point lead advantage over the president in favorability opinion. 52 to 51. shift of four points. top story tonight is the growing fall-out from last month's terror attack in libya. the obama administration conflicting statements about it. that tells you how serious this has become. fox team coverage. ed henry looks at the latest episode of obama administration damage control. but we begin with chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge on what went down today just behind me on capitol hill. good evening. >> thank you, bret. lawmakers question today whether the president political agenda throw security decisions on the ground in libya and assertions by the ad
people. >> mitt romney was critical of how the administration was handling this. does this provide justification? >> his initial criticism dealt with what took place in egypt. so it was not necessarily the criticism of what took place in libya. so i wouldn't be surprised if obviously his folks are going to jump on this as well, but this also was a volatile situation where we were not sure what the heck was going on. again, the problem is when you assign what took place when you don't know what for sure took place on the ground. >> this seems to be politicized by republicans and democrats, isn't it fair to suggest that maybe the republicans are pushing too hard here and that this isn't political, that the information is becoming available as it becomes available? >> they have pushed too hard previously. it will be interesting to see what they do over the next several days with both the vice presidential debate coming up and the second presidential debate coming up. one of the thing that is the romney campaign has miscalculated is their definition of presidential -- they have seen th

the request for further security. only months before the election, that is a very serious charge. imitt romney has put the attack at the heart of his argument that president obama does not stand for america. -- stand up for america. >> as the administration has finally conceded, these attacks were the deliver it work of terrorists. >> the committee -- for the deliberate -- these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> we have hundreds of terrorist-type activities. our consulate is bombed twice. the british ambassador has an assassination attempt. you are arguing about whether the number was five or two or five or three. >> democrats say the cuts backed by republicans are the problem. some say the whole situation is out of control. >> we all know the game. we want to stop the attacks on our embassies? let's stop trying to overthrow governments. >> one person said that another six agents would not have made a difference. this is about the state department looking complacent. >> for more on the hearings and what happened in benghazi, i am joined by p.j. crowley. thank you for coming in
off and pushed off. and the administration has not delved in to solve these problems. >> you had some advice for the romney campaign, five points, repeating a simple message that people can understand, you had an appeal to working class people, promised more effective cooperation and help the american people choose a vision that promotes opportunity over what you write as government-imposed equality. i want to focus in on ryan. do you feel like the campaign has used ryan effectively? >> i've known paul for a long time. he's one of those fellows i kind of brought along the congress. he's smart, he understands the budget, he understands tax issues. and part of it is what he's been allowed to do. part of it is playing defense. and i think we'll see in this next election, this debate coming up tomorrow morning, i think you'll see a paul ryan who is able to handle those kinds of issues and needs to be able to enunciate. >> i get the sense that you they we haven't seen enough rye ran? >> former speaker dennis hastert. >>> it's earnings season on wall street, investors are feeling a little b

the administration said on benghazi. let's put this in perspective. >> wait a minute. let's talk about mitt for just a little bit more. when he was a governor, he was a moderate mitt. i know mitt romney. i know the moderate mitt romney. but the last six years he's been running for president. and he's been anything but moderate. he has been the one who can win the republican nomination by being to the right of newt gingrich, to the right of santorum. and now once he has the nomination, he says, no, actually i'm going to spend more money than the current administration. i am going to blow the deficit up even larger. and by the way, all republicans, almost all republicans nationwide said we want to repeal row-wade and now says actually if you elect me, no chance. >> if we get too much caught up on him being moderate or being conservative, i'm not sure that the democrats taking advantage. where they've taken advantage is show him as someone without a consistent point of view willing to say anything because the president has to be someone who makes tough decisions even when they're unpop ulular. we'll se
, governor romney said the size of our navy has not been what it has been since 1916. where to begin. the number was the lowest during the bush administration in 2007. the 245 ships we had back in 1916 were simply not this the same class as our current hardware. how do you compare the boats back then with the massive fire power of the aircraft carriers. romney said the president has not signed one new free trade agreement in the past four years. he didn't sign one, he signed three, with panama, columbia and south korea. and exports were if you have an opinion, you better back it up. >>eliot spitzer takes on politics. >>science and republicans do not mix. >>now it's your turn at the only online forum with a direct line to eliot spitzer. >>join the debate now. >> eliot: with 28 days until the 2012 election we have entered the lamest of lame duck sessions. with the outcome still unclear, no one on capitol hill wants to do anything to affect their party's reelection. today brought more bad news. president obama was pulling away from mitt romney then he flopped in the most

(crowd laughing) this for me feels a bit like the titanic returning to visit the iceberg. >> narrator: it was mitt relaxed, relieved. >> my son said that having senator kennedy and me together, like this, on this stage, behind the same piece of landmark legislation, will help slow global warming. (crowd laughing) that's because hell has frozen over. >> narrator: senator kennedy, never one to be upstaged, joined in the fun. >> my son said something too, and that is when kennedy and romney support a piece of legislation, usually one of them hasn't read it.

that conclusion. gerri: professor, the administration that is saying 180 degrees the opposite of what you said. >> exactly. gerri: completely misinterpreting what you said. tell me about your analysis of mitt romney's plan. what would be the ultimate effect of raising -- lowering tax rates by 20% on everybody. take away some of these deductions. drawing a conclusion about how much money you could raise with the broader effect on the economy. do we not have enough details to back. >> a qualitative way, the tax system of the broader base. most economists would agree to that. the big question is how much more, and the honest thing to say is no one is sure. my view is that even a moderate amount of growth would be enough to make a difference. ten years from now gdp would be 3 percent higher than it would have been otherwise. that is not really dramatic, but it is sure enough money to matter. >> more dramatic than we have right now. do you believe that what has happened to this economy is the effect of the administration policy? >> this so much going on at the same time. the aftermath of the financ
